Also presenting at the same seminar were Ryder Architecture, Hilson Moran, Balfour Beatty and Kingspan Insulation. Some of the key slides below in this blog.
1. Richard Wise - Ryder Architecture
Richard was the first designer up to speak...
|Fig 1 - Makes the point that we already do build with standardised components|
|Fig 2 - The Manchester Central Library is a great BIM case study|
2. Nigel Clark - Hilson MoranFollowing Richard's presentation from an architectural perspective, Nigel gave some thoughts from a service engineer's point of view...
|Fig 3 - Making the point that you must get the fundamentals correct at the start of the project|
|Fig 4 - Great slide demonstrating both geometric and specification property set development|
|Fig 5 - Simple slide showing the benefits of BIM from the point of view of Hilson Moran|
3. Kevin Lloyd - Balfour Beatty
Balfour Beatty then presented the contractor angle...
|Fig 6 - Reducing waste through targets through 2013|
|Fig 7 - Learning lessons and standardising specification (NBS Create!)|
|Fig 8 - A big part of the waste debate is during demolishing - you must know what is in the building|
4. Karen Jones - Kingspan Insulation
For the first year we are now seeing manufacturers now present on BIM too. Karen Jones from Kingspan Insulation explained that it is about product innovation and on the service that is given to construction professionals. Not just glossy brochures and a big stand at ecobuild - but delivering the BIM objects that the market needs.
